About our lab

Welcome to the Weaver Lab! Fundamentally, our lab aims to understand the regulation of chromosome segregation during mitosis and the impact of chromosome missegregation on tumors. We are interested in determining mechanisms of proper chromosome segregation, defining how chemotherapeutic agents and radiation disrupt proper mitosis, and characterizing the consequences of chromosome segregation errors on tumor promotion, suppression, and response to therapy.
